I have a happy dance to share ,I am prancing round (I write fairy stories too lol) well I would if I could,prance around and write fairy stories.This is my finish

Quaker Christmas by Bygone Designs done on Sassys Celery fabric 28count ,with Vikki Claytons silk threads.
I hear Tina is almost there too, so WE DONE AND DID IT GIRL.Thanks for sal with me.
We started this as a Christmas sal so it is done and will be framed for Christmas.
Measurements are:-

Just so happy with it,can you tell !!!

Not so happy yesterday we have had BIG!!!!!!!! problems with our Internet Server and Martin was almost tearing his hair out yesterday as it wouldn't upload anything , e mails took ages to go if at all, and then this morning it wouldnt even connect. He has just phoned me to say to try it as he had "conversation" again with them this morning and HEY PRESTO at the moment it is working.Wehave had so many problems this last few months and if it was not such a pain changing e mail addresses to all and sundry (not that I call my friends sundry) , it is Martin it would affect most,we would be changing like a shot.
Frantically trying to get this done and posted then a couple of e mails to send .

Last week I had a sheepie suprise from Christine ,just so sweet of her she said she saw this and thought of me (I wonder why? lol)

I also sent out the 2 ornies to Hazel over at Stitch it and Pass it on,another 2finishes, but unfortunately I forgot to take pics ,dur! it was the Button up for Christmas designs from Cathy Jean at Victoria Sampler.Hazel was pleased with them anyway and so I am pleased too.

Tonight is Jane night with Sally yipee ,so look for an update on that in the coming days. We also decided to do the LHN ornies we have been collecting through the year on a Sunday , as I could not get to the computer yesterday I have almost finished Snowy pines so another finish looming. A couple of starts pending , well one I have started Autumn by Cross Eyed Cricket this I am doing over one, although I have to work out how I can do the fractional stitches in it. There arent many so hopefully it will not be too difficult.
I had the linen and threads for I have my love to keep me warm so I am hoping to start that one night a week. I also need a sheepie and a birdie night. ARE there enough nights in a week I ask myself.
So girlies I am sorry this is another short one but I need to get some things done on this machine in case it all goes to pot again.
Take care and I will hopefully catch up towards the end of the week.
Hugs n stuff
